I am need of leasehold conveyancing for a flat in a fairly new development (6 years old) in Chigwell. Almost all the properties have already been disposed of. Is it really necessary to order conveyancing searches for my conveyancing in Chigwell?

If you are purchasing a property with the assistance of a loan, your lender will need some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Chigwell conveyancing searches are for you to decide upon. Your solicitor, will 'advise', perhaps strongly, that you should have the searches done, but he or she has a professional duty to do this. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you demand that your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or you will need to swap to another solicitor for your conveyancing in Chigwell.

Just bought a detached house in Chigwell , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my proprietorship? My Chigwell conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be certain the registration is addressed.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Chigwell registration formalities.

Historically registration occurs once the purchaser is living at the premises thus an expedited registration is not usually primary concern but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
